Here's my favorite way to wrap up the month! It sort of makes saying good bye to February a celebration really. The 12 Kits of Occasions is a group of 12 friends who just happen to be addicted to paper crafting. Every month one of us packs up a bunch of supplies - patterned paper, stamped images, embellishments like ribbon, die cuts and gems for the rest of the group. On the last day of the month we all post our creations that we made. It's always interesting to me to see how different we all interpret the kit.
Sometimes I receive an item I'm not sure what to do with or struggle to put in my design. I think this month it's going to be the wooden snowman. He didn't give me any trouble but I'm anxious to see what the rest of the ladies did with it.
Our hostess this month is Renee Lynch from It's a Patchwork Life. Just look at all the wonderful goodies she packed in this kit for us. I would call Renee a CAS gal, but oh my!!! She totally thought of everything in this kit. Seriously .... whatever your style ... you would have no problem here! We received Crate Paper Patterened Paper, Sparkly sequins, Ribbon, Glittery Die Cuts and oh so much more!! I try to not add too many extras to the kit and use only what I've been given - that wasn't too hard this time. It was so easy to make lots of cards. I actually had to stop myself from making more! So you've been warned lots of photos here! We usually switch up the theme every month. This time it's all about SNOW!
A complete list of designers and ingredients can be found on the 12 Kits of Occassions Blog - there's a sneak peek for each designer so you can quickly see their style and links so you can hop to their blogs! We also have a guest designer this month Judy Marino! I hope you will give her a big hello! You might also win an upcoming kit so you can play along with us!
